Here is some big banging news.

CBS television’s ‘The Big Bang Theory’ star Jim Parsons is set to host ‘Saturday Night Live’ on March 1. Jim Parsons plays everyone’s favorite smarty-pants Sheldon Cooper on the smash hit TV comedy. This will be Parsons' first time hosting the show. Fans are sure to be anticipating some ‘Big Bang Theory’ parodies. Musical guest will be Beck whose album “Morning Phase is set for release on February 25.

One may try to argue that Parsons has really big shoes to fill as far as former SNL hosts go, but given his popularity and the amount of awards under his belt, Jim Parsons should feel no pressure at all. He’s got this. March 1 is sure to be a ratings winner for 'Saturday Night Live.'

You go Sheldon Cooper!
